About Understand Your Man

"Understand Your Man" is a 1964 single by Johnny Cash. The single went to number one on the country charts for six weeks. "Understand Your Man" also crossed over to the Top 40, peaking at number 35. Cash borrowed parts of the melody from Bob Dylan's "Don't Think Twice, It's All Right". It was also the last song Cash ever performed in front of an audience. It was the last song in his performance at the Carter Family Fold in Hiltons, Virginia, on 5 July 2003. Prior to singing it, Cash told the audience that at that point he had not performed it live in 25 years. (It was not, however, the final song he ever sang as, despite failing health, he continued to make studio recordings until late August 2003, shortly before his death.)

Don't call my name out your window, I'm leavin'
I won't even turn my head.
Don't sent your kinfolk to give me no talkin' 
I'll be gone, like I said.

You'd just say the same old things
That you be sayin' all along,
Just lay there in your bed and keep your mouth shut,
Till I'm gone.
Don't give me that old familiar cry and fuss and moan 

Understand your man.

Now, you can give my other suit to the Salvation Army,
And everything else I leave behind 
I ain't takin' nothin' that'll slow down my travelin'
While I'm untanglin' my mind.

Now, I ain't gonna repeat 
What I said any more 
While I'm breathin' air that ain't been breathed before,
I'll be just as gone as the wild goose in winter 

Understand your man, meditate on it 
Understand your man, I'm tired of your bad-mouthin' 
Understand your man.

Johnny Cash

John R. "Johnny" Cash (February 26, 1932 – September 12, 2003), was an American singer-songwriter, actor, and author, who has been called one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. Although he is primarily remembered as a country music icon, his songs and sound spanned many other genres including rockabilly and rock and roll—especially early in his career—as well as blues, folk, and gospel. This crossover appeal led to Cash being inducted in the Country Music Hall of Fame, the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame, and Gospel Music Hall of Fame. more »
